Alison Cook Beatty Dance Presents RAW
Alison Cook Beatty Dance presents "RAW" on Sunday, August 5th at 4pm. No costumes or lights. Just pure creativity. This is a special occasion to see, experience and discuss the creative process. In addition to performing selections of compositions currently in the repertoire, the Company will show new material they are working on for a NEW WORK premiering this Fall.
The MAC, located in the renovated Milford eastbound railroad station at 40 Railroad Avenue South, is excited to offer this experience to the community. "It isn't often that we get to see how creative people think, work, and create. Alison and company have been friends of the MAC for a long time. We are so happy to showcase their extraordinary work," states Paige Miglio, Executive Director.
In addition to a unique performance, the ticket includes a Meet & Greet session with the artistic director and the dancers along with a wine tasting. This is another opportunity for the audience to ask questions about the creative process. Lorie Lewis, Director of Marketing remarks, "There is no other venue that I know of that allows its audience to reach out and touch the performers the way we do. Our space is so intimate, warm, and welcoming and we love that we can provide opportunities for the performers and the audience to interact. "
